Fitting at suitshop yesterday for my new blue patch pocket suit. Unfortunately I was left pretty disappointed, there are some big problems with the shoulders and neck that I don't really understand how they happened. Shoulders look like they've been measured/made quite a bit too snug and the way the neck of the jacket has been made means my shirt is showing about 2 inches of collar which just looks ridiculous. the whole top of the jacket looks too snug.   I was not...

 We're not talking about Apple or Google here. What's called "The Australia tax" by semi-edgy people actually refers to the fact we have high wages, a high dollar, high rents etc. Places like Henry Bucks which charge a small premium to online costs are hardly run by rent seeking fat cats. You want to try on stuff at a small retailer and buy online, fine, that's your right as a consumer, but don't make yourself feel better by concocting some illusion that sellers are raking...
They're 3 for $14
